Spier Noble Song Pinotage 2018

"Fruity, rich and young in style, these wines are a welcome option for the conscious consumer or anyone with a sensitivity to sulphur."


NO ADDED SULPHUR, containing 0 mg/l of added SO2 per bottle.

This is South Africa’s signature grape with a subtle twist - no added sulphur! It’s made using 24-year-old Stellenbosch vines and crafted for anyone seeking a wine with fewer additives. The result is a seductive red with a finely scented, vibrant nose of red cherries and allspice. Mouth-watering tannins integrate with an elegant structure that occupies all corners of the palate. Savour this Pinotage with Mild Rogan Josh curry or fire-cooked snoek.

TASTING NOTE
Great concentration of red cherries, mulberries followed by a dense centre of allspice and sweet fruit. Beautiful integration of oak delivers a rich wine with good balance and fine tannin that will benefit from decanting.

WINEMAKING

WINEMAKER:

Johan Jordaan and Heidi Dietstein

ORIGIN

Paarl

TERROIR / SOIL

Decomposed granite with clay subsoil from the Stellenbosch Hills to the west of Stellenbosch.

VINEYARD AND CLIMATE CONDITIONS

Vines up to 24 years of age planted on a vertical trellis system, allowing for easy foliage management to expose the grape bunches to the sun. Stellenbosch fruit is subjected to cooler average temperatures, allowing for slow and even ripening.

WINEMAKING

100% Pinotage grapes were harvested by hand from selected vineyard blocks. After destemming, the wine fermented in stainless-steel tanks for up to 18 days on the skins. The free-run juice was barreled down to allow for malolactic fermentation and maturation in a combination of 85 % neutral French and 15% American oak barrels. The wine matured for 12 months in barrels before individual barrels were blended prior to bottling. No sulphur was added during the production, maturation or bottling of this wine.
